Will you always have combination skin?

Combination skin occurs mainly when you are young. The individual skin areas gradually adjust to each other throughout your life, or else your skin in general will become drier as you age.

Your daily skin cleansing poses a particular challenge: the T-zone needs to be gently cleared of oil, to avoid blackheads and spots, whilst the drier skin areas must not lose any moisture. Refreshing Cleansing Mousse from NIVEA is ideal for this. 

It’s important that you do not cleanse your skin more than twice a day – once in the morning and once at night. Otherwise, the sensitive skin areas will dry out even more. Tip: use a gentle wash gel. It will cleanse thoroughly and prevent irritation. Afterwards, tone the sebaceous T-zone in particular with a facial toner. NIVEA Moisturising Day Care maintains the skin’s natural moisture balance.

The problem you need to solve when caring for combination skin is making sure that the areas with oily skin are not made too greasy. And the areas with dry skin need plenty of moisture. 

Tip: make sure you use a light cream with a low oil content and apply it more sparingly to the forehead, nose and chin. It is essential that the cream has a moisturising effect but is light at the same time. Of course, you can use the same cream for both zones. But make sure you choose a cream which is tailored specifically to your skin type, for example NIVEA Moisturising Day Cream with vitamin E. For the eye area, you should opt for a cream specially developed for this sensitive area.

Combination skin in winter

Due to the air from heating systems in winter, the skin tends to be dry. Your skin needs extra protection and moisture at this time.

Combination skin in summer

In summer, the shiny area of combination skin is highlighted. When it comes to your skincare, you should always bear in mind that the skin changes with the seasons. Never forget to apply sun protection in summer!

Beautiful skin with a tinted day cream

Tinted day creams are especially ideal for playing sport, as they do not block the skin’s pores. This light cream means that you can manage without make-up or powder when you're sweating, yet keep your complexion looking even and smooth.

A tinted day cream not only protects your skin, but also provides for a flawless complexion. The BB Cream 5-in-1 Light smooths NIVEA, covers, moisturizes and protects. It contains minerals, provitamin B5 and a hint of makeup. A tinted day cream you can use instead of a Foundation. The opacity is a bit lower, but your skin receives an extra portion of care.
